The Future of Relationship Marketing & Technology

Clair Bush, International Marketing Director, Bullhorn - See my presentation

  • Recruiters are clearly comfortable with technology. The reliance to keep track of candidates and relationships is deeply embedded within most recruitment processes, but how is the use of technology changing and how will this affect recruitment? 
  • More importantly, how will this affect relationship marketing and how can you leverage these trends to stay ahead? 
  • Join Clair as she walks through trends and technical innovation, which is already starting to have an impact on how we engage and communicate in this more joined-up world.

As Director of International Marketing for Bullhorn, Clair is a highly experienced marketing professional with extensive knowledge of the recruitment sector. Having established herself as a recruitment marketing thought leader, Clair’s passion, perception and strategic thinking has elevated brands such as Randstad, Trinity Mirror Digital Recruitment, Huntress and most recently Broadbean, into the hearts and minds of each of their audiences. Clair works to ensure marketing best practice is a fundamental part of a successful business strategy and regularly presents on brand management, employer branding, recruitment marketing and technology trends.

Julie Bowen, Head of Talent Development, APSCo - See my presentation

  • During times of constant change and economic uncertainty, employees need to work harder than ever before
  • Keeping employees on side can be challenging with constant pressure to achieve more with less (fewer pay increases,  less available resources etc.)
  • Now more than ever is the time to focus on fully engaging with our employees; motivating and valuing them which in turn will benefit a company’s profitability 

With over 25 years HR experience in the recruitment sector, Julie heads up APSCo’s Talent Development team, providing high quality, credible recruitment, management and leadership training. She acts as Programme Director for APSCo’s Leadership Development Programme, accredited to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) as well as being an Executive Director of Women in Recruitment, focused on empowering women to achieve their full potential within the recruitment profession and assisting recruitment firms in making the most of the female talent in their businesses.  Julie is Programme Manager for APSCo’s unique paid summer intern programme, attracting undergraduate talent into recruitment in the UK and Asia.
